We have all at one point, chosen a belief structure that has embedded who we are. Whether we have decided to be a Christian, a Muslim or follow a spiritual but non religious lifestyle, we are engrained with our belief structure that we hold dear.
Society’s pressures however, can sometimes encourage us to act and be the exact opposite of what we believe. Should we fall into such pressure? The easy answer is “no” but we often find ourselves compromising who we are depending on the circumstances we face.
Temptations to go off of our moral track are everywhere. From the greed of overspending to bullying those who are already “kicked down”, temptation is cloaked in a fine cloth and can be blinding for us to see who we are. It is important to take away all of the smoke and mirrors and focus on each individual situation.
Will this action or decision compromise who I am?
